Collection

In time I hope to build pages to showcase all my pretties, but for now I’ll start with a partial list and try to get in some links to pictures.

This is, far and away, the most popular photo I have ever taken.

    WOW, that’s a big family!! I’m totally new to BJD’s, and I’m wondering if you could recommend one that you think would look good with blythe dolls, as a little brother? and also where I could buy him and the eyes, wig, etc..

    Do you do all your own face ups? I really want to learn, but I’m really nervous to !! I’m afraid to buy everything and then try it and find out, I stink!! lol

    I love your blog!! still looking for that monster high doll pattern….that dress was amazing!!

    Thanks, tina

    • Thank you! The best place to learn about BJDs is the Den of Angels forum.

      A lot of Blythe people seem to be drawn to Lati Yellow. I’m not sure the proportions are quite what you want. While some of the head molds are larger than others, they’re all much more in scale with their bodies than Blythe. Their chest measurements are similar to Blythe (so they can share some shirts and dresses), their wig size is 5/6 (Blythe’s is 9/10), and they’re just over 6″ tall. Latidoll makes beautiful dolls. I have…er…ten from them. You may be able to find one secondhand in the Den of Angels forum marketplace. I’ve always bought directly from Latidoll.com. Their website always has “soldout” on everything, except when they’re open for taking orders. After placing an order, it always took a few months to get things. If you’re looking for things that are more out of proportion like Blythe, you might want to consider looking around for a head you like and maybe matching it up with a body from another company (must be careful about resin matching).

      Hujoo might make cute Blythe sibs. They’re vinyl, not resin, and much less expensive. You can find them at Junkyspot.com. We have a Freya cat. Very cute little doll.

      US BJD dealers I’ve dealt with are Junkyspot.com, Denverdoll.com, and Mintoncard.com. All are lovely to deal with.
      I’ve bought wigs and eyes from Audreysdolls.com, Facetsbymarcia.com, Kemperdolls.com, and used items in the DoA marketplace.

      The dolls I’ve bought directly from the makers I’ve bought blank and have done my own faceups (and so I have some dolls which have been blank for some time). I have a few dolls I’ve bought secondhand which have lovely factory faceups.

      I love watching Nicolle’s Dreams doing faceups on YouTube (she makes it look easy). She uses an airbrush for part of it, but what she paints with the airbrush you can do with chalk pastels and a brush. So for basics you really just need a set of pastels, a few pencils, some brushes and sealer. All of that you can start collecting at the arts and crafts stores when there are sales and coupons, except the sealer. You can order Mr. Super Clear sealer from Junkyspot. In gathering all that, you’ll probably end up spending what you would have spent on a factory faceup.

      Most factory faceups I’ve seen are worth paying for, unless you just don’t like the style they use (like I HATE the thing where they put dark dots in the corners of mouth). If you choose to do it yourself, you can always wipe off faceups you don’t like and try again. As long as you use products recommended by the people who do a lot of this stuff, you won’t ruin the doll. If you find out you don’t like your own faceups, you can always send it to an artist and get something beautiful and original later on.

      I don’t know what I did with that Monster High pattern. This is typical of me.
